Did You Know?


When Curtie is talking to Mae, he pulls out a bag of .50 caliber rifle bullets and starts sharpening the tips of them with a file. While that looks very sinister, it is something a serious shooter would never do. A hand filed tip on a bullet could dramatically alter the flight path and make it highly inaccurate. A filed down bullet would also have a negative impact on the air pressure over the projectile and would compromise the expansion and/or overall penetration. It looked very cool, but a pro would never do that. See more »

Truly Awful
26 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The highlight of this film is Kevin Bacon's accent. He plays 'Jimmy the Brit' just so everyone knows he's supposed to be British (not an Aussie). His accent is a cross between Jason Statham and Dick Van Dyke with a good dollop of Ramsey-esque swearing thrown in.

Djimon Hounsou plays 'Curtie Church' (seriously) a troubled, spiritual mercenary with a conscience (Steven Seagal must have been unavailable). He has little to do in the film apart from shooting, slicing and generally rolling around an ever increasing number of bad guys.

The characters are all stereotypical, the script is lazy ("You're dark, and I don't mean your skin tone...") and the action scenes are bland, boring and forgettable.
